essie nail polish

It’s officially sandal weather people and what does that mean…it’s time to break out the summer nail polish arsenal.  From sun-kissed skin, beachy hair, and cocktails by the pool the only other thing we need is a rockin nail polish hue to grace our fingers and toes this season.  From a classic nude to a vibrant red and creamy coral; the offerings below are my all-time favorite polishes for summer.  I come back to these standout shades year after year and these five happy hues are perfect for summertime fun.  Keep reading to find out my picks!

summer nail polish picks
From L to R: Essie Tart Deco, Essie Topless and Barefoot, NCLA Call My Agent, Essie Bouncer It's Me, OPI You're Such a Budapest

  • Essie Topless and Barefoot (pale pink beige)  This shade is super opaque and such a classic nude.  It has some serious color payoff with just two coats and this looks bangin with a tan.
  • NCLA Call My Agent (bright orange red)  This is a vibrant red perfect for the no-nonsense gal.  I feel like you can never go wrong with a creamy red and the coral undertones in this polish make it perfect for summer.  NCLA is such a high quality nail lacquer range and this goes on smoothly and really lasts on my nails.
  • Essie Bouncer It's Me (vivid cobalt blue)  Ahh nothing pulls at my heartstrings like a bright blue nail polish.  I think they are so fun and this shade is amazing.  You have to work with it a little bit, and it usually needs three coats to reach opacity, but it's worth it.  The color is stunning and I love to wear this shade in the summer.
  • OPI You're Such a Budapest (pale periwinkle purple)  One of my hands down favorite nail polish shades of all times.  This is such a pretty color and I get compliments and questions about what's on my nails every time I wear it.  This looks blue in some lights, purple in others, but it's just dreamy and I can't recommend it enough.
  • Essie Tart Deco ( pale creamy coral)  This is such a pretty coral shade and perfect for toes.  Especially with a little bit of a tan this shade just works perfectly and lasts foreverrrr.  The formula applies very opaque and creamy, but I find you definitely need to give the bottle a good shake before applying as mine tends to separate.
